Hubby and I signed up for the introductory dive plus 2 dives. We spent a lot of time preparing our gear and learning various signals etc. Staff was very good. I didn't feel comfortable doing the diving after the pool so I didn't continue. Hubby did the liberty ship wreck and Suci garden. He really enjoyed the experience.

That was my first dive. Everything was great: we had a theoretical part, a pool training and my first dive. On the second dive I could do everything myself, so the training was very good and the results were fast. The instructors gave me a lot of attention, they were always close under water to help and tracked all the... More

Did two dives with Matahari team. Staff was helpful and friendly. They came to pick us up on time. The dive guide gave detailed briefing, each dive was maximum 45 minutes. The first dive was Liberty Wreck in the early morning with big waves. We were five divers with two dive guides. The dive guides took care of us very... More

Thank you for the feedback. This was a reason for a special staff meeting. I made big complain to the guide and now I can promise: it will not happen again. I am really not agree to touch and move something underwater and we all in Matahari really respect nature. Therefore we create our own house project "Suci Place" to... More

A great place to start learning diving as well as to have a relaxing dive trip. The fact that there are unlimited dives from shore allowed me to take as many breaks or dives as I needed. It is peaceful, and the instructors are professional and fun. Contrary to the other places I've dived at before, each dive started with... More

I stayed for 3 days in Tulamben to learn how to dive and scuba dive the shipwreck of the USS Liberty. Overall it was a great experience and I got to go at my own pace. The instructor made me feel very comfortable.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, accommodating, always fully booked. Book early. It has a dive shop, swimming pool, friendly dive masters. Unlimited dives. Free parking. Although I must say that the dives that are offered from the packages are worth it if you stay for a longer time. Only DM dives with you. There are better and larger accommodations (Western ocean...

Really nice place with some of Tulamben's best divesites right on the spot and others easy to reach by car or boat. Very recommendable for independent divers as well as for divers who like to be guided in a professional way. Great food, nice people and atmosphere. We'll be back.

We stayed with Matahari Tulamben Dive Center for 8 days in March 2016 and did a total of 19 dives. We enjoyed every single dive! Tulamben is a heaven for divers who enjoy macro lifes. We have seen more than 40 different species of nudibranches, as well as pygme seahorses, frogfishes and ribbon eels. Our dive instructors had excellent eyes... More
